That is kind of you. Actually I have all my information on my grandmother
Ellen Rosina Buller.
It was in searching for her mother but it is Birmingham so not applicable
to this list. My grandmother was born in 1886. There is a hint that her
mother's name was actually Ellen Rosina DECALMA but I only find her as
Ellen TAYLOR but I have ordered all the other birth registrations for her
siblings to let me see why this name arose. The amazing thing was finding
a Samuel DE CALMA marrying Elizabeth MINTRIDGE in 1844 at Birmingham.
Equally amazing his name was spelled DECALMER by the enumerators
throughout the census including his children and grandchildren. When I
check out the areas and street names it in the "foreign" part of
Birmingham in the 1840s. Samuel DE CALMA was an iron filer. There is only
one family with this surname on the 1851 census and it would appear that
all descendants with this name are descended from Samuel. I have a list of
people in England presently with the DECALMER surname but I am still
wanting to find something to link my BULLER family with the DECALMER
family before I am so bold as to write to them.
The marriage between Ellen TAYLOR or DE CALMA and Edwin Denner BULLER may
have been in London but thus far I haven't found it nor that for Edwin's
grandparents Christopher BULLER and Mary [maiden name unknown] likely in
the 1790s and near St Thomas. Their children were all baptized at St Mary
Magdalen Bermondsey starting in 1799. Another list member found two other
baptisms for me bringing me back to 1799 as my grandfather was born in
Edwin was stationed at Woolwich in 1871 and then out of the country in
1881 and I know that he was discharged (presumably because of a leg
injury but no records thus far) by 1886.
Thank you for your offer.
